Los Angeles, March 16 IANS | 5 months ago

Come autumn, comedian Russell Brand will release a new book sharing his own vision for how to "establish a personal and global utopia".


Publisher Century has acquired the as-yet-untitled volume, which will tackle Brand's views on "ecology, inequality, rioting, financial meltdown and the total mistrust of politicians", reports theguardian.com.

It would "act as a provocation; urging its readers to discard apathy and challenge the status quo".

"People keep asking me how The Revolution will work? 'We all want to bring down the government and establish a personal and global utopia, but how?' they ask," said Brand.

"Well, in this book, I'm going to explain it. Having accrued the greatest wisdom known to man (by conducting interviews, watching DVDs, reading books, thinking and looking at the sky) I am now able to put in a simple, accessible book(y wook) the solution to internal and external turmoil. And about time, too," he added.
